Internet of Energy Platform Aggregates and Monetizes Resources

By Ken Briodagh March 15, 2017

In a recent announcement, EnSync Energy Systems, a developer of distributed energy resource (DER) systems and “Internet of energy” control platforms for the utility, commercial, industrial and multi-tenant building markets, introduced its new DER Flex, a technology that is designed to enable aggregation and monetization of DERs, such as solar and energy storage, in utility and ISO markets.

This new platform is preloaded to handle numerous applications such as demand charge reduction, time-of-use optimization, back-up power, power factor correction, demand response and supply response on demand, all of which are designed to monetize resources, ensure resiliency and provide valuable grid services. DER Flex also automates transactions, precluding operators from having to become experts in energy markets and transactions.

DER Flex is a utility-grade platform, designed for mission critical communications, and is SCADA and NERC CIP compatible, enabling participation in utility and ISO markets. It includes forecasting, such as solar irradiance, to predict market opportunities and prioritize applications, and provides a suite of monitoring and reporting capabilities that utilize EnSync Energy cloud computing for simple scalability. It is compatible with smartphones, tablets and desktops, and the technology is already deployed at multiple C&I sites. DER Flex with the Matrix Energy Management system will be delivered to ENMAX, a leading Alberta based utility, in the coming weeks. The DER Flex will also be compatible with EnSync Energy's residential system that is scheduled to ship at the end of this calendar year.

“Every utility and every utility customer that deploys distributed energy resources will ultimately want the ability to link DERs to the grid network, and will require a platform that enables this to happen while meeting the utility's security requirements,” said Dan Nordloh, EVP, EnSync Energy. “DER Flex is the first platform that completely integrates and unlocks a myriad of applications to optimize the exchange of power for both the utility and the owner of the distributed resources.”
